Silverstone Raven RV05

RV05 is really a beauty to look at, as it offers a very unique, aggressive design with sharp edges and flat front panel. The design is completed by a windowed side panel in order to inspect the mighty hardware inside the case at any given time and a big RAVEN logo at the front. Also, Silverstone RV05 is available in non-windowed version. Of course, in typical Raven fashion, the color used throughout the case is black, and only black. RV05 has dimensions of 242mm (W) x 529mm (H) x 498mm (D) or capacity of 63.8 liters and weight of 7.6 kg. The case is made from steel and plastic used for the panel elements.

In terms of motherboard support the RV05 has the ability to house SSI-CEB, ATX and Micro-ATX boards. Expansion-wise you have the option to use seven expansion slots (GPUs up to 310mm), along with two 3.5″ and two 2.5” drive bays. CPU height limitation is 162mm. Another thing to mention is the 90 degree mounting of the motherboard for not only cool looks, but also more efficient cooling. No 5.25″ drive slots are available in order to implement that design in smaller size case, but you have slim slot for an optical drive.

Cooling system of RV05

Two fans come included with RV05 and although it may sound like a poor cooling configuration out of the box, these are not just the typical fans – RV05 has two bottom mounted AP181, 180mm, high pressure, high airflow fans, that are able to bring cool air inside the case’s internals. On the top you can mount 120mm fan (or liquid AIO, 120mm radiator), and also you are able to replace the two 180mm fans at the bottom with three 120mm or two 140mm fans of your choosing. Water cooling radiators are also an option to be considered in these fan slots for even more impressive cooling.
